A protester from Just Stop Oil glued themselves to a radio microphone while live on air this morning. 

Climate activist Nathan McGovern, 22, was speaking to Tom Swarbrick in LBC’s Westminster studio when he glued his hand to the microphone at around 11.40am.

Mr McGovern said that the station was ‘not using’ its ‘massive platform’ to inform listeners of the dangers of the climate crisis.

He said that he pulled the stunt because ‘people need to be aware’.

The climate activist said that he, an ‘ordinary person’, was having to tell listeners about the climate crisis

Mr McGovern, from Just Stop Oil, said that presenter Tom Swarbrick was not using his ‘massive platform’ to tell people about the climate ‘situation’

Speaking live, Mr McGovern said to Mr Swarbrick: ‘You have a massive platform, a microphone that you can use to tell people about the situation we’re in and you’re not using it. 

‘An ordinary person like me is having to take the microphone and tell your viewers the situation we are in.’ 

The LBC presenter said: ‘For those of you listening wondering what the banging on the microphone is, Mr McGovern seems to have, you’ve glued yourself to the microphone? That’s fantastic.’ 

After the incident, LBC presenter Andrew Pierce took over the live programme from another studio, before handing back to Mr Swarbrick.  

He appeared as a spokesperson for Animal Rebellion advocating a 'plant-based food system' on Nigel Farage's GB News show in October 2021

After the disruption, the group tweeted: ‘Every new oil and gas facility tightens the noose around the necks of our young people.

‘If the media will not communicate their predicament they will have no choice but to take the microphone.’ 

Protesters were glued on to roads, suspended on bamboo tripods, and locked on to oil drums and each other from around 4am. There is no suggestion anyone picture was among those arrested
